I have a Dell Inspiron 1545, Windows Vista 64, Intel® Core 2 Duo CPU, T6500 @ 210 GHZ 2100 MHZ, 2 Cores.
4 GB RAM, 325 GB HD.
A couple of weeks ago my computer started locking up.
I thought it was Firefox causing it, cause it only seemed to do it while I was using Firefox. Usually within 10 minutes.
It has also locked up 4 or 5 times using Google Chrome.
The CPU usage was under 90% when it locked up.
My CPU seems to run high but right now it is under 20%.
I was wondering if the CPU was over heating and that was causing the computer to lock up.
I went to the Firefox community support site and followed the procedures given to someone else who had computer freeze problems, but none of those seemed to help.
I was trying to find out if there is a way to determine my CPU temp and what the limits are.
